The Mpumalanga department of education revoke the appointment letters as National Senior Certificate markers of some teachers after 7 matriculants were caught cheating in an exam

The Mpumalanga department of education revoke the appointment letters as National Senior Certificate markers of some teachers after 7 matriculants were caught cheating in an exam.

“We are profoundly unhappy,” stated SGB secretary Hildah Molapo in response to allegations that Chukudu Manyabeane, director of examinations, had terminated the contracts of 12 educators for breaking clause 8 of the appointment norms and regulations.

She stated that the choice was decided even before formal charges against the teachers were filed.

They were not informed of their offenses prior to receiving punishment, she added.

While Molapo didn’t dispute that students were found in possession of notes, she said teachers were not a part of it.

“We are aware of the decision to stop the teachers from marking,” said Walter Hlaise, the South African Democratic Teachers Union’s provincial secretary. “We are representing and defending these teachers in this situation.

Elijah Mhlanga, a spokesman for the basic education department, stated: “The Mpumalanga department’s action was done in the interest of defending the examination. It does not imply that someone is at fault. It’s a preventative measure to make sure that education can continue. That is okay for us to do.”
